Physical Therapy provides health care services to patients of all ages and health conditions. The overall goal of Physical Therapy is to achieve the highest level of function and independence.
Norton County Hospital Physical Therapy Department provides services to outpatients as well as hospital inpatients in acute, skilled and intermediate levels. The PT department is staffed by two Physical Therapy Assistants who work under the supervision and direction of a consulting Physical Therapist. The department is open Monday thru Friday 7:00 am to 4:00 pm.
With a physician's order, patients are seen for evaluation and establishment of a plan of care. Treatment may include modalities for pain control, muscle re-education and functional limitations. An exercise program may be initiated for post-surgical, muscle weakness or imbalance. Patient education may be included to cover mobility, posture, body mechanics and ergonomics.
Norton County Hospital Physical Therapy staff offers an eight-week water aerobic class each summer at the city pool. They offer a low impact class and a higher cardiac impact class. This has been a great success over the past years with a wide variety of ages participating each summer.
